Valuable New Resource for Facts on Retirement

by

On September 5, 2018, FactsOnRetirement.org was launched by the Investment Company Institute. On the new site, extensive research and data is provided on the US retirement system demonstrating the strength and effectiveness of the system, dispelling misconceptions, and providing information and resources for those interested in learning more.

“ICI has a team of experts dedicated to studying the US retirement system and FactsOnRetirement.org will help make their work more readily available and easily accessible to the growing body of academics, policymakers, and the public who are engaged on this important issue,” said ICI President and CEO Paul Schott Stevens. “Whether you’re new to the issue or a seasoned expert, we believe this site will be a valuable resource that shows how we can build on the strengths of the current system to enhance retirement savings—and security—in the United States.”

The site consists of four sections:  Retirement by the Numbers, Myths vs. Facts, Tips for Savers, and Additional Resources.  Whether you are in retirement, planning for retirement, or advising clients, you’ll find interesting and valuable information, well worth your time and attention.
